A.D.1189. PEACE BETWEEN ENGLAND AND FBANCE. 109 king of France. The king of France had, however, sent him word before they set out, that from Chateau Saint Martin, whither he had betaken himself by fording the Loire, he should make an attack upon the city. Accordingly, on the ensuing Monday, at about the third hour, applying their scaling ladders to the walls on the side of the Loire, which on account of the small quantity of the water, was much contracted1 and reduced, the city was taken by storm and in it eighty r knights and a hundred men at arms. To their great disgrace, on the one side, the Poitevins were planning treachery against their liege lord the king of England, and on the other the Bretons, who had joined the king of France, and had obtained from him letters patent, to the effect that he would never make peace with the king of England unless the Bretons were included in the treaty. Accordingly, the king of England, being reduced to straits, made peace with Philip, king of Prance, on the following terms :— Conditions ofpeace made between Henry, king of England and, Philip, king of France. " Upon this, the before-named king of France and king of England, and Bichard, earl of Poitou, with their archbishops, bishops, earls, and barons, about the time of the feast of the Apostles Saint Peter and Saint Paul, held a conference between Tours and Arasie, where the king of England wholly placed himself under the control and at the will of the king of France. The king of England then did homage to the king of France, although11 at the beginning of the war he had renounced the lordship of the king of France, and the king of France had quitted all claim of his homage. It was then provided by the king of France that Alice, his sister, whom the king of England had in his charge, should be given up and placed in the charge of one of five persons, of whom earl Bichard should make' choice. It was next provided by the king of France that security should be given by the oath of certain men of that land that his said sister should be delivered up to earl Bichard on his return from Jerusalem, and that earl Bichard should receive the oath ofvfealty from his father's subjects on both sides the sea, and that none of the barons or knights who had in that war withdrawn from the king of England and come over to earl Richard should again return to the king of England, except 1 1 Meaning that it was done previous to the war breaking out.
